The level in Advanced Diploma is always higher than the normal Diploma course. The subjects are more detailed. You can specialize on a subject in advanced diploma program. Advance Diploma in management is recognized by most of the organizations. However, the value of any course depends on the institute from where you are doing the course. Advanced Diploma is generally a postgraduate qualification, although some graduate diplomas involve the study of undergraduate level courses (see Postgraduate diploma). The diploma is normally taken following a Bachelor's degree and a successful award allows progression to a Masters Degree without having received Honours with the Bachelor's Degree. More recently, post-graduate diplomas have become more popular, as they allow graduate-level specialization studies to be completed in half the time of a masters, while still being transferable into a masters degree in the same topic.
